IB teacher award
The IB is working with a growing number of universities globally to develop and offer IB-recognized postgraduate courses of study aimed to develop teachers' understanding of the principles and practices associated with each of the three IB programmes.
This initiative also involves the creation of an award framework for formally acknowledging this understanding and the commitment teachers make to their professional learning.
By successfully completing a course of study participants can register for an IB teacher award.
To find out about university involvement in the scheme, visit the IB teacher award page.
Global engage website
The IB Global engage website has been created to enable students, teachers, parents, school communities, IB staff and everyone associated with the IB to share and collaborate on the IB community theme: sharing our humanity. Find out more at the Global engage website.
